RBI keeps key policy rates, CRR unchanged (Meaning of CRR Rate, Repo Rate and Reverse Repo Rate)

In the mid-quarter review of the monetary policy held today, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) kept key policy rates and the Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) unchanged. However, the guidance given was that “a durable receding of inflation” will open up space for further easing of the monetary policy.

The repo rate stands at 7.25% while the reverse repo rate stands at 6.25%. The CRR remains at 4% of banks Net Demand and Time Liabilities (NDTL).

The guidance given by the central banks was that the monetary policy stance will be determined by how growth and inflation trajectories and the balance of payments situation evolve in the months ahead.

“It is only a durable receding of inflation that will open up the space for monetary policy to continue to address risks to growth. While several measures have been taken to contain the current account deficit, we need to be vigilant about the global uncertainty, the rapid shift in risk perceptions and its impact on capital flows,” the central bank said in the policy statement.

The guidance added that RBI stands ready to use all available instruments and measures to respond rapidly and appropriately to any adverse developments.

Government bond yields inched up a tad following the policy statement. At 11:10AM the yield on the 10-year benchmark government bond 7.16% 2023 was trading at 7.33% compared with 7.32% before the release of the policy statement.

The Wholesale Price Index (WPI) inflation data release on Friday showed that for the month of May it fell to 4.7% compared with 4.89% a month ago.
